Strange airflow graphs in SleepyHead
Hello, for several nights there is missing airflow data for part of the night. All the other data appears normal so I am puzzled as to the reason. I am guessing that the fault is in the CPAP, a four year old Philips Respironics System One. It is not humidifying either BTW.
The oximeter data shows good results so obviously I am breathing (:-)).
This is what I see:

I can't seem to insert the image here, but the URL will take you to the picture
This happened three nights, now the report is normal again.
Has anyone seen this?

Happened with me once. Same machine. Apparently some bug.

Started APAP 4-20, Closed range to 7.5-14, then straight 8.0 w/ Aflex 3
RDI always below 1. But sleep much much better at straight pressure.
Started on F10, Tried Quattro Air successfully. Finally settled on P10.

Aliens. We always blame the aliens for stuff like this.

I wonder if the missing piece will appear later when you download data again?
